Take Me Out to the Ballgame at the Annual Santa Clarita Dodger Day!
If the eight homerun, record-breaking season opener was any indication of what the Dodgers have in store for us this year – you will not want to miss Santa Clarita Dodger Day. This family-friendly event is one of the longest running in our community. At 42 years and still going strong, the community support for our boys in blue at SCV Dodger Day is always a highlight of the spring season.If you have never been to Santa Clarita Dodger Day – here is what to expect. First, you need to buy your tickets online at SCVDodgerDay.com. Remember to specify what local school or non-profit you would like to support with your ticket purchase, because a portion of ticket sales will be donated back to that organization. Then on Saturday, May 11, 2019, get to the ballpark for the 6:10 p.m. start against the Washington Nationals. The promotional item of the night is a Dodgers lightweight hoodie, only available while supplies last, so make sure you arrive at Dodgers Stadium in plenty of time. Meet up with your fellow community members to enjoy a night of stellar baseball, world-famous Dodger Dogs, peanuts and Cracker Jack – all while supporting your hometown of Santa Clarita and our Los Angeles Dodgers!
While you are on the website buying your tickets, make sure to check out the short video from last year’s event and see if you can spot your friends in the crowd from local groups like the Newhall Community Center, Youth Sports and the Boys & Girls Club. Events like Santa Clarita Dodger Day are another way our City is creating community by providing opportunities for residents to band together to support a common cause – like our two-time reigning National League Champion Los Angeles Dodgers! Play ball!
